to bring you back in and bring in our chief congressional correspondent dana bash so we can have this whole conversation as we're watching and awaiting the secretary of state there to testify before the house foreign affairs committee. and, dana bash, do we have you seated? >> i am, hi, brooke. >> nice to see you. as we await what will possibly be a little bit more fiery, right, questioning from members of the house as opposed to what we saw with the senate foreign relations committee earlier this morning, first, just give me a little bit of a preview, what are you hearing, what are you expecting to come from this, this afternoon? >> reporter: we're probably going to hear very similar lines of questioning that we heard, especially from republicans in this senate. it got maybe a little bit more fiery, a little more intense in the senate than we would have anticipated. we do anticipate that kind of atmosphere in the house, which is kind of the way the house tends to be, the house is run by republicans. and even the house republican chair anticipated it to be that kind of atmosphere because i
tapper has been watching this with me. dana bash is on capitol hill. this is vintage hillary clinton. she responded to the direct accusations, the challenges but the republicans especially -- and we'll get to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talk
experience. >> jessica, thanks very much. we will be checking back with you as well. dana bash is over in the rotunda inside the capitol. getting some good access to pokes who were arriving, including the spot, where the president will be making his big entrance about an hour or owe from now. dana, what are you seeing? what are you hearing? >> that's right. >> this really is a great location because in the capitol rotunda we will see the president minutes after the swearing in ceremony happens. he will come lou here and walk over towards the senate side of the capitol for a signing ceremony. what that effectively does put himself and cabinet on the payroll but it really is an indication about how every single minute of this ceremony is choreographed for today's imagery and tomorrow's history. this is where the president will start his walk towards history. steps few take once, even fewer, twice. now we are in the crypt of the capitol. >> the president will come down these stairs. >> reporter: senator chuck schumer chair it is inaugural committee and will personally escort the president
blanketing washington, d.c., dana bash, christi paul, brianna keilar, and suzanne malveaux along the parade route. the turnout not expected to match the 1.8 million spectators from 2009. estimates roughly half. somewhere around 800,000 people. and as christi paul says, nothing to sneeze at. the fourth time as president of the united states, president obama will take the oath of office. first time, the president, his wife, and two daughters looking on. he has to be sworn in on january 20th. the vice president joe biden was sworn in by sonia sotomayor. made history as the first latina to swear in a vice president. here is looking ahead. the first family starts the day with a service at st. john's epit copal church at 8:45. and the president is sworn in 11:55 eastern time. and the presidential address at noon and later at 2:35, lead the inaugural parade down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. and then the balls and all the partying begin. we begin with john king, a look at what else is happening today. hey, john. >> hello again, soledad. the balls and parties begin after the ceremony. a b
. senior congressional correspondent dana bash is here with me. you talked to senator charles schumer. what is he saying today? >> it is very interesting. i was obviously -- that's building that i'm very familiar w i cover that building. i walk -- hi, everybody. >> hello. >> i walk the halls of that building in -- every single day. and to see the transformation as it happened was remarkable. people may not realize that it's the chair and ranking member of what's called the senate rules committee that are really in charge of making this happen and i talked to the chair, senator chuck schumer of new york. here's a little bit of what he told me about how the preparation has gone on. >> you know, it started close to a year ago, we didn't know hot president would be. it is done in a barton way, lamar alexander and i and he is the vice chair and we do things as much as together as you can. you have to build a platform, 1600 people h the most coveted seats in america, any time. the number of seats. >> i can't imagine. >> just huge. >> you just saw the building of that platform. i will give you som
bloodied by one of the most notorious shootings in california history. dana bash was over at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. tell our viewers, dana, how it unfolded. >> reporter: wolf, of all of the gun control measures that president obama announced earlier this month, banning the assault weapons at least reviving the ban is going to be the most difficult to pass here in congress. even the primary senate sponsor says it will take years. for dianne feinstein, it's personal. >> supervisor harvey milk have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first openly gay public official in america was so traumatic, she rarely discusses it. you were very close to that tragic shooting. but here at the launch, she announced it great detail. >> i was the one who found supervisor milk's body and put a finger in a bullet hole trying to get a pulse. once you have been through one of these episodes, one you see what the crime scene is like, it changes your view of weapons. >> she put on an elaborate event. even getting permission from d.c. to dis
's bipartisan goodwill already seems to be a very distant memory. our senior congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by. >> reporter: republicans are arguing that the president is trying to foist the center right country in the words of the senate minority leader. he said, not a great way to start off the second term. the senate republican leader had his sound bite on the president's speech ready to go. >> the era of liberalism is unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech certainly brings back memories of the democratic party of ages past. >> reporter: far different from the restrained response the house gop leader gave us hours after the speech. >> you know, i think that the president did a fine job certainly laying out what he would like to see happen as far as the future of the country. we have some differences. hopefully we can bridge those differences. >> reporter: cantor was coming from a bipartisan post inaugural lunch. now with the inauguration over and the pressure to be respectful past, conservatives are eager to share their disgust. >> he's trying to throw a bone
in that dead aassault on the embassy in benghazi. dana bash is our chief congressional correspondent with us as well. wolf, i'll start with you, give us a sense of what you think the tone will be. connie mack saying he thinks she has a ton of respect and no one will be playing gotcha. >> i think it will be respectful, it's only supposed to go on for 90 minutes starting at the top of the hour, and later this afternoon, 90 minutes, so it will be limited in time, she's highly respected, and she's coming after a very serious illness, a concussion followed by a blood clot in her head. she's wrapping up her tenure. so there are serious question that's will be reviewed. >> she's done that before, right? >> she'll do it again today. >> so to some degree, because she has done it before, what else do you think they need to or want to hear from her? >> she didn't herself testify before that accountability review board. they're going to want to hear her side of the story. where was she, why didn't she go on the sunday talk shows, why did she delegate susan rice who has no responsibility for d diplomatic
. obviously this game will win out tonight. correspondent dana bash joins us. who is planning to be there and who isn't? which i know is a political statement in a political town. >> what's fascinating is they built this platform, 1,600 seats are available on the platform. it is tradition for the supreme court justices to be there. they will be there for the joint chiefs of staff to be there. they will be there. and for governors, senators and lawmakers as well as, of course, members of the president and vice president's family. for the most part, we do expect lawmakers to be there. one thing that we were sort of looking at is whether house republicans are going to come. deirdre walsh, our house producer, was at the republican retreat last week. and she heard several members saying, you know, it's a long weekend, a holiday weekend. i'm going to go home. they didn't feel compelled to be here necessarily. we'll be watching to see that. this is traditionally a nonpartisan event. i don't even say bipartisan. this is a tribute to the system working. so it is a second inaugural, but
, he'll be on the west front of the capitol for his ceremonial swearing in and inaugural speech. dana bash is on the west front. what a view from up there. >> that's right. it is a remarkable view. if our viewers can see what we're seeing and what the president will see tomorrow, you can effectively see down to where you are down the national mall to about the middle of the mall i should say. a spectacular view. sparsely populated right now but it will look different tomorrow. take you back to where i am right now and i am in front of where the president will give the ceremonial, i guess, the ceremonial oath behind me. this is a platform that they started building three and a half months ago and candy, you know, you are here regularly every four years, 1600 people sit on this platform and it's the hottest ticket in town. it is going to be really a remarkable symbol, i think, and everybody here, democrats and republicans, say symbol of the fact there aren't tanks in the streets, no matter the political differences we see every day in the capitol, this is something seamless considering.
we have it for the record. >> reporter: history in the making. dana bash, cnn, washington. >> a historic second term begins. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear. >> so help you god? >> so help me god. >> now the stage is set for a day long party in the nation's capital. we'll take you behind the scenes of the last-minute preparation. for the president's speech, the parade, the balls and the tone being set for the battles ahead. >> i say to you that the challenges we face are real but know this, america. they will be met. >> this is cnn's coverage of the presidential inauguration. from the first salute to the last dance. a divided nation comes together for a celebration of democracy. >> and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. ♪ >> we are live at the national mall. good evening, everyone. i'm anderson cooper. tomorrow, the lead band leading off the parade is going to be from gramibling state, university, louisiana. tonight, they lead off our coverage. take it away, guys. ♪ ♪
. lewis told dana bash what he was feeling as he watched america's first african-american president take the oath for the second time. >> i did everything possible today to keep from crying. when i saw him standing there, taking the oath with the bible of martin luther king jr., knowing that just 50 short years ago, that dr. king stood on the steps of the lincoln memorial and said i have a dream. >> of course, this was actually the fourth time that president obama has taken the oath of office. let's bring in our panel, van jones, cnn contributor who served as president obama's green jobs adviser in 2009. sally quinn, margaret hoover, republican consultant, cornell belcher, democratic strategist who served fas a pollster for president obama's 2012 re-election team. i wonder how you think this anniversary, this martin luther king day, informed and was infused throughout president obama's remarks today. >> i'll go back to even when he was senator obama. he always talked about, he also understood the gravity and talked about, i stand on the shoulders of the great men and women of the civil r
to give some ground in the debt fight. dana bash is joining us now. dana, are the republicans in the house of representatives blinking a little here? what's going on? >> a little, wolt if. they say they are going to have a vote that will delay the debt ceiling for three months. so what they are doing, if you really look at house republicans who took the majority two years ago, they did it standing on principle for pretty much every squirmish. it seems that they are becoming a bit more sophisticated, rather, but their understanding, it seems, is that you have to pick your battles. losing credit ratings and so forth, that's not a smart battle to wage. look at some of the most conservative members of the house talking to deirdre walsh at the end of their retreat for three days about picking their battles in a better way. >> deal with the smaller ones first, maybe build up a little momentum, credibility, not only with the credit markets but with the folks back home, that we can actually deal with these things, take the small one first, debt ceiling last, i think it's a rational, reasonable thi
of public opinion which is very relevant here. dana jacobson has interviewed lance armstrong, good to see body of you. let me start by asking each of you, anyone who wasn't watching you last night, you watched the first part of the interview. you were both -- you were not satisfied. i'm putting it nicely. you didn't think he did a good job. >> he wasn't contrite at all. he didn't -- he may have been trying to say i'm sorry. he didn't even come close to it in the way he acted and the way he acted toward people that he hurt. i don't know how he makes up for it tonight. i don't know how that's possible -- >> you don't think he could say something -- he's talking about his wife, his children -- >> i think he could have cried and nobody would have -- i shouldn't say nobody. most people would not have believed him. i think i said at the end of last night, what's so difficult, it was probably too soon. i don't know if he could say anything where he could get the majority of people on his side at this point because he lied for so long about this and he went after people. he didn't just lie, he we
in our penl. david epstein is a senior writer for "sports illustrated." dana jacobson is with cbs sports and paul callan is our legal contributor. you were all critical last night. you didn't feel satisfied. let me ask you, did you feel that -- did he win you another tonight? >> no. and i said earlier there's probably no way he could have won me over. maybe i saw a little more human side when his kids were mentioned. he was -- oprah said do you owe people an apology and he listed the people he owes an apology to, and he didn't do it last night when he had a chance. he didn't do it tonight when he had a chance. he could have done that publicly the way he humiliated them publicly. he didn't win me over. >> he did have a moment where he cried talking about his kids tonight, that there was emotion. but when he answered all of the other questions, david, did you feel better? >> well, i think people would have wanted to see the crying when he was talking about somebody else who he damaged. i don't think it's a surprise that he would be sad about his own loss or the harm in his own life, but he
a ten capitol in the morning is going on for more than a year. dana bash takes us behind the scenes. >> reporter: no, that's not the president. it's a stand-in. but this is the kind of exhaustive prep going on to make sure there are no mistakes. it's not just for the president. senator chuck schumer is the events emcee. >> oh yeah. i don't want to do what chief justice roberts did. he's brilliant and he messed up. >> reporter: roberts messed up the oath four years ago. >> i'll execute -- >> faithfully the office of the president faithfully. >> reporter: he had to go to the white house for a do-over. who what are you afraid of? >> introducing the wrong person, who knows? >> reporter: as chair of the inaugural committee, assumer is preparing for this day more than a year. >> we didn't know who the president would be. but together, it's always done in a bipartisan way. >> reporter: a central focus, trying to avoid problems that put a damper on the last obama inauguration. >> tens of thousands of people missed it. they came in from all over the country. so, we've done symbolic things li
for the traditional inauguration day church service and then up to the capitol where we find dana bash. >> thanks, brianna. i am on the west front of the capitol and this is where you're going to see that iconic image of the inauguration, 24 hours from now. this platform will seat about 1600 people and it is really the hottest it ticket in town. you're going to have members of the president and vice president's family, also going to have members of the joint chiefs of staff, the supreme court, governors, senators, house members, actually hearing that some house republicans are not going to be here, even though this is traditionally a bipartisan -- actually a nonpartisan event. this is also the kind of event that draws celebrity supporters. we had james taylor concert effectively here, practicing to sing "america the beautiful" tomorrow, beyonce will be here as well. i want you to look down the mall to see what everybody here is going to see tomorrow. doesn't look like a lot of people now, but we expect to see 600,000 to 800,000 people filling the national mall where don lemon is right now. >> oh,
many crisis. we have a number of new members on the house committee, and they have been warned, as dana barb reported this morning, noted they had to be told by the chairman of the house committee to be respectful. he was concerned, perhaps, that some of them were going to try to make a names for themselves perhaps inappropriately. >> and the secretary is now being seated. you see the photographers there. dana bash is on capitol hill, walk us through it, the senator from new jersey will open, and then what happens. >> that's right, he will have a statement, and then the ranking republican will as well, and then we will hear from secretary clinton. generally these hearings go on and on. and bob menendez is starting now. >> let's listen. >> since the full senate has not passed the committee resolution officially seating members, i want to ask unanimous consent of members to participate in today's hering. if there is no objection, so ordered. madame secretary, let me welcome you and thank you for honoring your commitment to come before the committee after the administrative review board's
. dana bash is live in washington. let's talk about dianne feinstein's props first. she's going to be holding a bushmasterer? >> reporter: i'm not sure if she'll be holding it. she might. she will have more than one assault weapon and she's going to have them on display. there you see the bushmaster ar-15. that is was, of course, the kind of weapon used in the newtown shootings. but the reason she is going to do this, i'm told, is to show specifically her fellow democrat, of which there are half a dozen or more that want to do little if anything to change the assault weapon laws, that you don't need these kinds of guns in the average of ordinary people. that is likely the argument she is going to make. again, it's going to be aimed at her fellow democrats resistant to this. but she is going to have a lot of different people with her to make this argument. this is the unveiling of the premier key legislation she promised to put out at the beginning of congress right after newtown. we are expecting to have quite a show when she comes up in about an hour. >> just so people understa
